BALTIMORE - Danfoss announced that it will sponsor a briefing in New York City on Sept. 15, titled “Energy Efficiency: The Path to NYC’s Residential Transformation.”

According to the company, the event, co-sponsored by the Alliance to Save Energy, will explore the strategies and technologies capable of transforming energy consumption in the city’s multi-unit residential buildings. Speakers include:

• U.S Rep. Paul Tonko (D-N.Y.);

• Francis Murray, president and CEO, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA);

• Kateri Callahan, president, Alliance to Save Energy; and

• Tom Sahagian, energy division manager, Power Concept L.L.C.

“Energy efficiency plays an increasingly important role in the economies of our cities,” said Lyle Moroz, vice president, Danfoss Heating Solutions. “As part of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s comprehensive PlaNYC initiative to improve the city environment, city leaders are giving special attention to the challenge of transforming energy use in existing residential buildings. Their insights and experience can provide valuable feedback for anyone facing similar challenges in the urban environment, especially with respect to the mid- and large-sized multi-unit buildings that are such a critical link in the urban housing delivery chain.”

Danfoss said this event will explore the goals and challenges facing New York City and share information regarding actual energy savings results from a recent heating technology installation in two NYC co-ops. Discussions will address strategies for enhanced sustainability, building codes, energy-efficient technologies and investments that will integrate environmental and energy policy to transform New York City into a model of efficiency for existing residential buildings.
